C is for Cookie Exchange

This year at my church, we’re having a cookie exchange, and since I love to bake, I decided to join in.

I’m making these yummy homemade snicker bars.

And of course, I’m packaging them in cute homemade cloth bags, which I featured in one of my DIY projects.

NaBloPoMo December

So I’m not sure if December is officially a NaBloPoMo (I’m pretty sure November is…) but since there were prompts up on the official website, I’m going to just pretend like it’s happening in December. Especially because I missed the November sign-up date (and I knew about it back in September! And just forgot until it was too late 😥 )

Anyways, if you want to sign up for NaBloPoMo December, check out this link, and join in on the fun! http://www.blogher.com/nablopomo-december-2012-prompts

Overzealous Play Rehearsals

This afternoon, my friend was fetching a camera from my yearbook instructor’s office to take pictures of the school play. This sounds like an easy task, but apparently it wasn’t.

My friend came back into the yearbook room (across campus from the yearbook instructor’s office) limping and proclaiming “I think I twisted my ankle…”

How does one  react to this?

Especially when one’s friend looks like she is smuggling a tangerine into her tights (because of the swelling).

And you know the funniest part?

She twisted her ankle by walking down stairs and stepping on a wrong step. Not exercising, or anything exciting like that. Nope, walking down stairs.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Loving Lately #1: George Fox University

This weekend, I visited George Fox University for the “Bruin Preview,” which is a visitor’s weekend where you can go to classes and stay in the dorm. It was pretty fun, and I met some really cool people. I have a tie-dye shirt lined up for me (which one of the people that I met makes).

George Fox is a pretty cool school. What I love about it the most is the atmosphere. People are really laid back, and nice to everyone. I also like the super-gorgeous campus.

Here are some pictures I took:

There is a drive in theatre right down the street!

Wacky Weather in Washington

Today I decided to write about the wacky weather we have over here on the west coast.

There were some wildfires on the other side of the mountains recently, so we had a red sky in the morning… usually it was more red than this

Not really “wacky weather,” just a nice picture of a sunrise

This looks like snow, doesn’t it? It’s actually hail… on Sunday it was hailing so hard that when I walked outside I felt like I was being stabbed in the head…

More hail

More hail

Vivacious events…

Does that title even work? I feel like the word vivacious can’t describe a noun besides a person, but whatever…

Some good stuff that’s happening this week:

1. Yearbook class! I’m really enjoying making fun layouts for different grades and learning how to use Photoshop and Illustrator to make shapes… it’s harder than it looks.

2. My tea is being shipped! We don’t have very good tea in our house… Irish Breakfast and English Breakfast are good but I get tired of it really fast… currently I’m having chocolate mint tea that expired in August 2010… this is what it has come to.

3. My last barista class! This means I can work at a coffee shop now!

4. Scrapbook club! This already happened, and it was really fun to look at old pictures of me and my family! I also made lattes for some of the ladies there – using an espresso machine – good barista experience!

5. The weekend! I am so sick of school already… and it’s only been a few months. It’s weird, but days seem to go on forever but before you know it two months have gone by!

Until next time, Em 🙂
